Sam Frost has been permitted to continue filming Home & Away after revealing she isn't vaccinated against the coronavirus.
The reality TV star recently explained (without going into too much detail) about her vaccination status and also used some choice language in her now-deleted video on Instagram.
Despite copping a hell of a lot of backlash, Channel 7 has explained Sam will still be permitted to work on set of the long-running TV series.
A spokesperson for the network told Daily Mail Australia: "Seven strongly encourages vaccination for all our people and all Seven productions strictly adhere to the public health Covid-19 safe protocols.
"All Home and Away cast and crew also undertake Covid-19 testing three times a week in addition to other preventative measures.
"Sam Frost continues to work on Home and Away and follows the safety protocols in place."
She explained in her video that she has chosen not to get the vaccine after talking to her GP but didn't elaborate on what the reason behind that was.
Frost explained how she believes that non-vaccinated Aussies are being made to feel like they are less than human and that they're being segregated from the rest of society.
"I was really hesitant about doing a video or even speaking up about this sort of thing, but I feel like it's getting to a point now in the world where there's a lot of segregation, a lot of harsh judgment, and its taking its toll on my mental health," she said in her video.
"There are a lot of different reasons people aren't getting vaccinated - and it might be because of their medical history, the concerns they might have, they might have family history, it might be religious reasons, whatever.
"I want to tell those people that feel like they're getting separated from society - well, I'm not vaccinated, and there's a reason why I'm not, I've spoken to my doctor and my psychologist about it, and I'm going to keep it private.
"It's a really hard time to be in society right now, you feel like you are less of a human and you feel like people judge you, and you're too scared to talk about your opinion or your feelings, and part of you wants to go, 'Well, it's none of your damn business why I'm not [vaccinated].'"
She was heavily criticised for the segregation comment and was reminded that unvaccinated people in New South Wales only have to wait until December 1 until they can enjoy all the freedoms that vaccinated people get from today (October 11).
